Admirable veteran; notched a 13th win from 99 starts over fences (also 3-10 over hurdles) when determinedly running down a stablemate in blustery conditions over C&D (soft) in April; 2lb higher, and is likely to appreciate any further easing of the ground conditions.

Not the force of old but has won nine times here and wasn't disgraced when fourth over C&D (soft) 19 days ago; should give a good account but others more persuasive.

Form & Verdict
Fair fourth at Newcastle (2m4f, soft) in January and a case can be made on that form now 9lb lower; however, this 11yo has struggled the next twice and arrives with something to prove today.

J: Jack Hogan

Four-time chase winner on very soft ground in France but he's generally struggled in five runs for this yard and was pulled up at Sedgefield last month; has a lot to prove from 7lb out of the weights.

W: 11st 12lb

6 yo Gelding

OR: 96

Form & Verdict
The form of his 250-1 third in a novice hurdle at Newcastle in February shouldn't be taken at face value, and he took a heavy fall at the second fence on last month's chase debut at Market Rasen; however, he was sent off at just 11-2 and this lightly raced 6yo has potential off his current mark.

Outran his 250-1 odds at Newcastle on the latest of his three attempts over hurdles, and a literal reading of that form suggests an opening mark of 96 is workable provided he backs it up; makes handicap/chase debut.
